Stone Cold Steve Austin made a triumphant return to the WWE on Sunday night at WrestleMania 30.
Austin sent wrestling fans crazy when he appeared alongside other WWE legends Hulk Hogan and The Rock to introduce the show at the New Orleans Superdome.
But speaking on his latest 'Steve Austin Show' podcast, the 49-year old revealed he felt some regret that his time at the heart of the event was so short.
Austin revealed that he initially wanted to sing the Hank Williams song 'Jambalaya' to the fans, only to see plans scuppered by an apparent trademark issue, and he went on to admit he wished he could have spent longer in the limelight:
"We all clacked a few beers together, drank the, and then because I didn't want to take any of the time away from the WWE superstars, made my exit a lot sooner than I would have liked to.
"It would have been nice to have a little bit more time out there because I haven't been out in a WWE ring for I don't know how long, and I could have talked for thirty minutes because that's what I do.
"And I had something for that damn crowds ass that night... I was ready to cut loose, cut a damn good promo and sing 'Jambalaya'. But I probably got about ten percent of what I had to say," said Austin.
Fans, I am sure, would have loved to have seen Austin afforded the opportunity to take control of the annual extravaganza, and who wouldn't have appreciated seeing Stone Cold exercise his vocal chords?
But alas it wasn't to be as Vince McMahon maintained tight control of the situation, producing another slick event that only added to the excitement surrounding the organization at present.
